Spring is finally here!

Sunday, March 23, 2014

I'm so glad that the long, cold winter is over and Spring is finally here! It's not very warm today, but the sun is shining brightly and I'm thankful for that!

I'm making a new start today. I have tried doing this without the support and motivation of Spark People and I have not been very successful. I've lost and regained the same 20 pounds over and over. It's time to stop goofing around and start taking my health seriously. I've always been someone who took care of everyone else, but now it's time for me to take care of myself. I've gone through some changes in thought in recent months and I am now ready to treat myself with care, concern, love and respect.

Happy Spring!

I'm glad the weekend is here! This was the first full week of our summer vacation and Lindsay and I have been having a great time together. I love hanging out with my girl. The only thing that could have made this week better was warmer weather so we could have spent more time in the pool. I'm not complaining, though.

We're going to do some yard work tomorrow morning and then I plan on grabbing my Kindle and reading in a lounge chair for the rest of the weekend.

Have a blessed weekend everyone!

disappointed but not turning to food

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

A situation with a friend has me a little down, but instead of turning to the fridge, I turned on the xbox and danced with Dance Central for a little while. Afterwards, I felt much better physically and most importantly, emotionally! That's a NSV for sure. I'm sure that this situation will continue to cause stress and create some pretty intense feelings, but now I KNOW that I don't have to turn to food to feel better.

Have a great night!

First Day of Summer Break

Friday, May 31, 2013

7th grade is over! It went so fast! My baby is growing up.

We slept in this morning and it felt so good. It's great to wake up on my own without that annoying alarm clock going off.

On the to do list for today: finish opening the pool, pay a few bills, weed the flower beds and then sit on the patio with my kindle reading. Sounds like the perfect first day of vacation to me.

Lindsay will be nursing her very first sunburn again today. All the seventh graders went to the pool Wednesday for their end of year celebration and instead of listening to her momma, my girl decided that once was enough when it comes to putting on sunscreen. She was in the sun for 6 hours. Poor kiddo got burnt. She's really dark complected and doesn't burn usually. Poor kid is miserable. Fortunately, she didn't do like her friend who decided to apply tanning lotion instead of sunscreen and wound up in the ER Wednesday night. Poor girly!

Happy last day of May!

    I hope y'all enjoy a pleasant summer with no more sunburns.

When our children were youngsters we lived in Florida. With all the time at the beaches & in our pool, I used to have them wear a light tee-shirt over their bathing suits - as well as using the sunscreen. They were always safe from the damage & pain that the sun can cause.

God bless!

Proud Mama

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

In about an hour hubby and I will be heading to Lindsay's school for an awards assembly. She'll be receiving an award for all year merit honor roll. We're very proud of our 'star student'. emoticon

After the assembly we're heading to the Dairy Queen for a treat. I'll be having 1 scoop of sugar free strawberry ice cream in a cup.

Two more days of school and then the summer can officially begin!
